  • Score: 91 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Rosato Il Medaglione is intensely perfumed with notes of rose, lavender and violets giving way to white smoke and ripe melon. Cooling citrus-tinged fruit and minerals mix with zesty acids, making for a juicy, mouthwatering expression. It lingers long, but remains remarkably fresh, tapering off with a zing of sour apple and spice. There’s really nothing quite like the contrasts you can find in a Negroamaro Rosato, providing both a fun and thought-provoking experience. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2019 Wine Enthusiast Crushed strawberry, gravel and peppery spice carry the mild nose. Creamy melon and red berry flavors are joined by a well-integrated vein of acidity, while a bit of citric lift and a gentle grip of tannins arise on the finish. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of wild bramble berries and watermelon carry to the fruit-forward palate. Flavors of red apple and cherry offer brightness, with tangy acidity, limestone and delicate tannins framing it all. ALEXANDER PEARTREE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
